Adjunct Professor (Former Employee), Chicago Heights, IL – October 10, 2012
Pros: staff and department chairs. also, fantastic students.
Cons: no room for promotion.
I worked for PSC for 5 years and really really loved my students and co-workers. I was adjunct, and was not really able to move up the ladder though. That was a sad part of the job - I would have stayed there longer had I even suspected that there might be a chance to move up. It just never came!!
Great educational Environment. decent Part-Time Work.
Studio Facilities Monitor (Current Employee), Chicago Heights, IL – July 20, 2012
Pros: access to good recording equipment for practicing techniques.
Cons: lack of access to even better equipment, budget constraints particularly when they affected funding for the position.
Typical day included reorganizing the workspace from any previous users. Prepping for any scheduled classes or recording sessions. Updating the music library database that I was creating. representing the department to potential participants. Prepping equipment for offsite performances. Musical practice. Recording technique Practice. Tutoring of Students.
Here – more... I learned to work with many different and diverse age groups and skill levels. The management was easy going but professional. The hardest part of the job was dealing with budget constraints that many times left us attempting to get things done "creatively" with the wrong or inadequate equipment, or unable to perform at all.
The most enjoyable part was the continuous interaction with creative people, and the trust that management had for all the employees. – less
Instructional Technology Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago Heights IL – July 15, 2012
Good, knowledgeable management. Always learning new things that were relevant to my job function. Also got the chance to help a lot of less tech savvy faculty/students that were in need of help so they could go forth with their education process.
